Stuursmansfontein Corbelled Guest House

This historic corbelled guest house was once home to the Great Grandparents of the present owners, Piet & Charmaine Botha.

The house is equipped either for self catering or on a "bed & breakfast" basis.  Dinner is also available.

It is romantically set in typical Karoo landscape and can sleep 4/6 people comfortably.

As is befitting a house such as this, lighting is by candles / gas lamps to retain the atmosphere, whilst a gas fridge and stove are installed. For absolute peace, tranquillity and security, no better retreat will be found.

There is no cellphone reception in the vicinity of the house so your stay can not be interrupted - but should there be an emergency, your hosts can be contacted to pass on messages to you.

The house oozes the history of the area and has been decorated by Charmaine with much love and warmth.

BBQ/braai facilities are available in the "asbosskerm" which is only found in the Karoo.
